classic american convertible, used in the parade of drivers in 2012’s formula 1 race at the circuit of the americas

today being veteran’s day, i thought for this #autoside tuesday i’d post a classic american car in red, white, and blue.  this beauty was used in the parade of drivers who raced in the first formula one race at austin’s circuit of the americas track, back in november of 2012.

i got to be there, photographing the race and the track for austin monthly‘s blog.  it was loud and awesome and such a feast for the eyes to have 24 classic convertibles from the 60s along the track.

one of the ongoing themes in my instagram stream is #autoside.  i love love love old cars–mostly 60s and 70s models.  whenever a car catches my eye, i take a straight shot of the length of it wherever it’s parked.  i always use the hashtag, so if you look for it on instagram you should see a fair number of my images among the 1000s of photos others post under that tag.

i’ll keep posting favorites here every week :)
